does it mean that ch 45 is the last one or is it ch 49 thats the last one because it says on the info that ch 49 is the last one.i dont really know how the scanlating thing works because i know some chapters have already been completed but are still updating because the scanlating is slow.

does the same apply for this manga as well because i hope we get 5 more chapters instead of one more.
Chapter 48 is the final chapter of the main Tonari no Kaibutsu kun manga in volume 12. But... I don't know why MAL says 49, bad edit. I will send a correction.

Chapter one of the new Sasayan and Natsume side story (Tonari no Kaibutsu kun ban gai hen) just came out in Dessert magazine! So it isn't entirely over, it is really just starting up again after a short break with an emphasis on another couple.


thanks for the update and im pretty excited to see sasayan and natsume's story as the seemed more like side characters that helped out in the main story. maybe the roles will be reversed and shizuku and haru will be the supporting/side characters.

Been reading the manga for some time and honestly don't feel really surprised that it was going to end. They tied up almost everything in the last few chapters. All that's left is to close what few threads remain

Namaste~

EDIT : I wonder what happened with this site. Coudn't access it until just now

MAL was down for much of the day... perhaps a good thing for me at least.

Sorry, your post saying Tonari no Kaibutsu kun had or would go to shit if it continued just got me going...

If you read what I wrote you would know this is about the popular side couple. Now they will have time to develop their relationship, time to shine.

Did you even read the original? Or are you just here to be a MAL shit disturber? Generic "I'm glad it's ending, let it end" crap post. Joined a week and a half ago and already posting like this? Welcome to the MALicious forums...


Wow, bitter much? Life's too short for that kind of crap. But well, i wrote that post with the crappy soul eater not and the breaker 2 in mind so i got biased a lot, and yet you take it as a personal attack and strike me back by bringing up my join date. What does it have to do with the post i made just now, considering i've made several post with different tones before (which i suppose you wouldn't care about)?

^ At least he is not a troll (far from it) but his problem stems mainly from way too much negativity on everything he has to say. No matter how restrained he tries to sound, he is more into voicing out negative opinions for things that he happens not to approve, be it the genre, the style, the direction of where a franchise goes etc etc. And he also makes it sound that all these things he does not approve are really bad (so the usage of words like "shit" etc).

As expected and I'm sure demanded by fans, the spinoff manga began in the October issue of Dessert (out now) and features Sasayan and Natsume!

But i'm more surprised that people want things to continue till they become complete shit. It had a good run, ladies and gentlemen.

Was the character Natsume popular in Japan that it encouraged the spin-off or the author just decided to do it?

It is a spinoff though. Even though the main story had a good run, is it the same as saying every possible potential of additional story coming from the TonaKai world, even that about side characters in it, is going to be complete shit. I think you should try not to judge things so prematurely.

Everything has to come to an end, yup it was a good manga nonetheless, I'm looking forward to the spinoff!!

Ye, I think she deserves a spinoff in the future. Anyways, I'll keep an eye on that spinoff as well.

This was on my plan to read list so I'll get about it reading it now that it's ending. Probably watch the anime first though.
Episode 13 is a bit off from the manga, 1-12 are pretty much spot on so you can pretty much watch the anime, then pick up on chapter 17/book 5 of the manga and read it from there. With crap sales there won't be any more anime other than the side-story OVA which has nothing to do with the manga.

"Often"? You mean as in: only used that way in quotes? Or are you just using a different "English" than everyone else? Nobody uses "he" to mean an unspecified gender in normal conversation. It's actually more common to use "they"--even though it's a plural pronoun and you're referring to a single person of unspecified gender. That's just how it is.
Well if I want to say a manga artist of unspecified gender, what should be used? He. Of course in some cases you can use a generic "they", but it has never been wrong to use a generic "he". In fact this was the more common usage in older days.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singular_they#Generic_he

Also

Origin of the Concept of the Gender-Neutral Masculine Pronoun
"It was [Ann] Fisher [author of A New Grammar, 1745] who promoted the convention of using he, him and his as pronouns to cover both male and female in general statements such as 'Everyone has his quirks.' To be precise, she says that 'The Masculine Person answers to the general Name, which comprehends both Male and Female; as, Any person who knows what he says.' This idea caught on. . . . The convention was bolstered by an Act of Parliament in 1850: in order to simplify the language used in other Acts, it was decreed that the masculine pronoun be understood to include both males and females."
(Henry Hitchings, The Language Wars: A History of Proper English. Macmillan, 2011)


So it is not incorrect to use "he" to refer to a person of indefinite gender. Now after the political correct movement, there is a tendency to use all kinds of tricks, including the generic "they", to avoid using a generic "he", either because of the users being political correct themselves or because of the fear of being called sexist. But it is never wrong to use generic "he" to refer to a singular person of indefinite gender, and your assumption that a generic "he" implies it is always a male only exposed your ignorance.

More like poorly argued and biased criticism
Uh... what? So now you're going to try to argue that my statement is false? Surely that's not what you're saying.
Did I say that your statement is false? Whether this manga drags on for too long is a matter of personal preference and I am not going to argue whether it is the case or not, but even assuming that it does, your targeting this manga and arguing that its delay is something worth a post to criticize is what I am objecting: that your criticism adds little when there are so many manga which also "delay the ending".

DraconisMarch said:
It does not matter what other manga do.
Yeah, if you just want to throw in a platitude that can apply to many manga, of course you could say that. And my comment to that post of yours was to point out that your one sentence post is such platitude.

DraconisMarch said:
Your poorly argued (irony) attempt at making my statement look bad would only work if every single manga were the same, and every single one took the same route of delaying the end as long as possible/making shit up as you go. It would only work if it were an intrinsic property of being a manga--like the fact that manga as a medium don't have sound. But since that most definitely isn't the case, your "other manga do it so it doesn't matter" argument is pretty sad.
Why should "every single manga were the same" is necessary to make your statement look bad? You already look bad if there are other manga (no need for "every single manga") who keep on delaying the end. Since there are so many manga which do this kind of "delay", your targeting of this manga just look poorly thought out and argued. A tendency to "delay the ending" does not have to be any intrinsic property of manga - just the commonness of it would be sufficient to make you look bad in singling out this manga for its "delay in ending".
